Book Description

Oct 2001 Baby Einstein
Introduce your babies to birds, cats, dogs, and babies through fine art, illustration, and photographs.

A brief text accompanies each image, introducing the baby to some basic -- and sometimes playful -- information about the subjects.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a joy 13 May 2004
Format:Board book
I've immediately returned to this site after receiving this book and The Lanaguage Nursery; absolutely wonderful and amazingly (to me) have been around since the late 80s. Gentle ways to introduce great works (and some teenagers here at the time enoyed them to). I work with children of all ages and found the 'Where would you put yourself in the picture' type examples really inspirational and gentle. Great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 28 Feb 2005
Format:Board book
I fell in love with this book on first sight, my four-year-old son has taken a little longer but now he loves it too.
It is a beautiful book - consisting of six nicely reproduced Van Gogh pictures each one based on a different colour (red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple).
It is wonderful to sit down with my son and explore the pictures and their themes. The text consists of some questions and observations but the text is just a starting point, there is huge scope for digression and discussion - very educational and great fun.
Unreservedly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 7 Jun 2003
Format:Board book
My son is 4 months, and he enjoys the bright colours on the pages. As he grows older I will be able to share this lovely book with him in more detail.
Each page has an original Van Gogh painting, it then asks you to look for something in the painting as well as other questions. On the back cover it also tells you a little about Van Gough and ideas to do with your own children. The only negative would be that it has American spellings, such as color.
I'm already exposing him to books at an early age, and looking forward to introducing him to art, talking about colours, about the paintings themselves and make our own versions when he is much older!
Before becoming a mum, I used to work at a nursery and 'the baby einstain' collection would have been great to use alongside the national curriculm.

I will certainly be purchasing further items in the future...

Both of my daughters loved this book, to the point that I purchased a poster of Stary Night for their play room. A wonderful and interesting introduction to colours and art for little ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great alternative to standard baby books! 16 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
As a die-hard Van Gogh fan, I was thrilled when I found this book. I was concerned that my 6-month old wouldn't be interested, but she loved it! The tabs make it easy for her to turn the pages herself, and the bright colors attract her attention. Now, at 11 months, she focuses enough that I can read the colors to her and point out objects in the pictures. It is a wonderful alternative to standard, cartoony baby books. I wish they made similar books for other famous artists! (How about Picasso? Monet? Georgia O'Keefe?)
Unlike the reviewers who complained that the book is just like the video, I have focused on books rather than television. My daughter loves this book, and I'm sure she will someday be thrilled the first time she is able to recognize a painting as Van Gogh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Van Gogh's World of Color 30 Sep 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
My daughter loved looking at the pictures in this book, and asked for it every night for weeks. At one, the text was too advanced for her, but we would talk about the pictures--object names, colors, and other things she could relate to. I think when she's a little older, she'll still enjoy the pictures, but will also be able to appreciate the text. From my perspective, a "baby book" that lasts beyond babyhood is pretty rare. Her Baby Einstein books are among the few of her "baby board" books that we are keeping so she can enjoy them again when she's older.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby Einsteins Van Gogh 21 April 2002
By A. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
While this book may appear to be only for the little tykes don't let it fool you. Children as old as 40 have been known to read and like this book. What a great way to introduce Van Gogh in a simple, non-threatening way. Baby Einstein is a genius!

1.0 out of 5 stars Pictures...not attractive 7 Jun 2006
By Diana Gercar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
Very cultural but not attractive enough for my 2 yr old...colors are kind of dull. Baby Einstein has much better books than this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Orginiality 25 Sep 2001
By firefencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This book is just pictures of all the art that your child may have seen in the baby van goh video. I was not impressed as it does not hold my childs intrest. It shows pictures and then has captions like can you find all the yellow things. The aim of this book is to teach colors. I don't think this book does a very good job of it. Personally I found this unimaginativce and felt the baby einstein company just reguritated information to us that we already had seen and owned from them. If you don't have the video you may like this. If you have the video then don't buy it there is just no reason.
